Bath Time Travel Essentials


I’m not entirely sure what happened yesterday with this post but I wrote it on my phone and it seems it went awry. We’ve been without hot water and heat for 4 days now (the plumber is coming tomorrow – thank God!) and sick of filling the bath with the kettle we decided to visit my parents to clean the clan. I thought I’d take the opportunity to share the ’emergency’ bath kit I put together for my first proper hot bath in days (ahhhh).

Asda Protect Anti-Dandruff shampoo – This is actually Lee’s but I’ve suffered from a really dry scalp myself recently so I thought one bottle of shampoo would do for us both. I’ve used it a couple of times now and I’m not sure it’s done much but it’s so irritating and this is so cheap that I will persevere. If any of you have any product recommendations or even home remedies I’m all ears!

Naked Rescue Repairing Hair Treatment – I raved about this over a year ago for it’s restorative properties.. you can see a post on my then haircare loves here – bizarrely I was also using an anti-dandruff shampoo then too.. hmm! I was originally sent a sample sachet of this intensive conditioner but have since bought it myself and it really is great, I wanted to get the big pot but it’s no longer available so the sachet’s will have to do – link

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish – If you don’t know what this is by now you’ve been living under a rock.. it’s ‘YouTube famous’ and a great basic cleanser which removes makeup and comes with a muslin cloth to exfoliate.. a great multipurpose product to exfoliate but not something I’d get excited about.. anymore – link – I bought my travel size on eBay

Murad Clarifying Mask – I’m not sure whether this came in one of my Glossyboxes or one of the mens ones I bought Lee but this again is a product I brough along for size rather than effectiveness. It’s a nice clay mask but it’s expensive in the full size and not great enough for me to purchase.. nice for on the go like this though, in fact I think I also took this to Vegas with me – link

FAB Gentle Body Wash – My skin isn’t particularly sensitive but this is another item I packed for our last vacation because I thought it would work well after we’d been out walking in the sun all day. It’s probably great for those easily irritated but because I’m not I don’t really see the benefits of this.. it’s not bad but I wouldn’t buy it (again a sample from a Glossybox) – link

Disposable Razor – This is another Asda special, it’s very similar to the Gillette but a fraction of the price and I far prefer mens disposables to womens… but never Bic, you hear? Never!!! They do the job and you get 5 for £1.50.. again I don’t have sensitive skin and actually don’t even use anything to shave with (just water) so I’m not sure if these would be as great for everyone but they’re a bargain! – link

So there you have it, not a collection of my favourite things but some basic essentials that do what I need them to when I’m away from home. There are some great finds in there but for the most part it’s sample sizes that win when I’m packing a toiletries bag. Which of your products would make the cut?

    Try coconut oil on your scalp. It works wonders! It has anti-fungal properties which is great for skin irritations. Plus it’s fantastic on dry hair and skin. I use it everyday 🙂
